Great score on those industrial turret fixtures, they have been replacing 8 foot turrets where I work with 6 lamp F54T5 fixtures. The 8 foot fixtures have been converted to T8 HO. When the lamps fail in the T5 fixtures it melts the lamp holder. Never had that with turrets.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Wish I could have grabbed something like these when I was installing new lighting in my unfinished basement. I settled for T12 RS troffers that had been converted to T8 IS.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Great save funkybulb!! Last time I have seen these fixtures was about 2 years ago at a local salvage yard. The people wouldn't let me have any of them becuase of a "possible PCB ballast". They didn't even take the ballasts out. Just threw them into a car to get crushed in a car crusher. I would have LOVED to have 2 of those oldies, that is for sure!

Love dresses, make-up and just crazy about fluorescent lighting!!  Keep those T12's and magnetic ballasts alive!!

@ Brendda75, I can't stand Illinois nazi's. Not you the people at the salvage yard. If they crushed the ballast that would have let out the PCB's. As long as they are sealed they are ok.

My scrap yard will let ya buy there scrap stuff
At there scrap selling price, but most of the
Time I just trade off in scrap weight. When
I sell my metal to the scrap yard. Here they
Wont even let u bring in a pcb ballast to ther
Scrap yard. Also older cloth wire ballast might contain asbestos as long as the ballast wire is not disturbed. I have one in bad shape I just wet them to keep the dust down. And wire the ballast with new leads.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

@Powergroove: I know what you mean about the slavage yards. Unfortunately, there are many of them here who doesn't care about PCB's. I know of in central IL, the owner of the place doesn't care if the ballasts has PCB's. He just throws the fixtures into cars prior to crushing them. He also does the same thing with fluorescent lamps, he loads them up into a van prior to crushing. Anything to get that extra dollar I guess. And with no regards to the enviroment. Just found out the other day, the one closest to me got shut down by the EPA, and last time I went thru the area, they had it all blocked off, with those bucket excavators digging the ground up.....and to think about what might be in my drinking water...

@funkybulb: There are a few scrap yards that are wlways willing to sell fixtures and stuff. Some are really cheap while others might charge $20 a fixture. But I don't think any of them look to see if the ballast has PCB's or not. Most of them just have them toss it into the pile to get crushed by a bulldozer or something.
